Canning Jar Soap Dispenser

You've probably seen these on the internet and I've wanted to make one for the longest time.  One of my dear DIL's  did make one and it turned out soooo cute!  I mentioned to my hubby that I wanted to make one.  I brought in all the supplies and my Knight in Shining Armor, went out and brought in his drill and a piece of styrofoam.  He loves to help out.  Here's how we  he did it:

1 canning jar
1 lid
1 band
a pump from an old soap dispenser (I happen to love the Bath and Body foam soap)
Spray paint, if you want to paint the lid and band

Mark your lid for slightly smaller than the underneath part of your soap dispenser.

Hubby used a drill and made little holes around the circle and then he used diagoanal pliers to cut the lid.  You want it kind of jagged so that when you push the pump into the hole, it stays tight.

Push the dispenser into the lid. Put on the band and you're ready to go!


NOTE:  I wanted mine spray painted a satin chrome color to match my faucet.  Oil rubbed bronze would be pretty, also, if you have a dark pump.
